Technorati authority, Alexa rank and PageRank are ranking that provide a gauge to a blog’s popularity and authority level. To many bloggers, these rankings are no longer viewed as critically as before because it can either be gamed, or the ranking algorithms are askew, thus rendering them inaccurate.
A personal method I employ to gauge the popularity of a blog, and hence, the relevance of its content, is the number of RSS subscriber shown in the feed count widget. If I see a blog having 10,000 subscribers, I’m pretty sure I won’t go wrong or waste time reading it.
A good way to gain and increase your RSS feed subscriber, besides churning out killer content on a regular basis, is to run a simple contest offering prizes that are difficult to resist . This is what Money Ning is doing.
He is going to give away cash amounting to his highest RSS subscriber count by June 1st and divide the amount among 10 winners. That is to say, the more subscribers he gains, the more money will go into the cash pile! Is that tempting or what?
There are a few ways to gain more entries and increase your chances:
- Become an email subscriber (10 entries)
- Blog about the contest with a link to contest post (20 entries)
- Stumble contest post (5 entries)
- Each meaningful comment (no spam) will earn 1 entry
Starting in June, one winner will be drawn everyday for 10 days. Remember that if you want to help increase the total prize money, subscribe to Money Ning RSS Feed.
